I marched in opposition to the Second Gulf War, both in Washington, DC and New York. I spoke out to any who would listen about the grossly immoral actions our nation were taking. I made my voice heard.
Now, I will continue to speak out against those in power who are tearing apart our country and ripping up the very fabric of American society. I see #BLOTUS creating a dangerous personality cult that is far to similar to what Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s. We are already at the place where those in power can enrich themselves while ignoring the needs of the poor and middle classes.
History shows us where this road leads, It isn’t pretty, and it isn’t a place I want us to go.
Trump’s greed and his message of hate must be resisted at every opportunity. I will again take to the streets if the Trump-Russia investigation is derailed by any means. The right to peaceful protest needs to be used while it is still a right.
Truth is where you find it, right? When I saw this photo it stopped me cold. I would not ever allow a child or a grandchild of mine say the things or act the way the Liar-in-Chief speaks and acts.
I am confounded that a third of our country sees the man as a leader and a good role model. His gross immorality and blatant lack of ethical behavior is abhorrent. Yet, numerous white evangelical leaders continue to choose him over the message of the Gospel.
Tomorrow night is the State of the Union Address. For the first time in history we need to make sure we protect our children from watching.
Actually, nothing has changed, has it? The truth is it has always been about us. What are we willing to ignore? How much are we willing to put up with? How low are we willing to go?
Peter Story, a Methodist Bishop from South Africa once remarked that during the apartheid years, he was always deeply ashamed of his nation for the immorality of such an unjust system. Every day of this presidency and this administration I am identifying more deeply with the pain he felt and what he was saying.
Where is our basic decency? When will we say enough is enough, and begin to reclaim the standard human decency that has always created hope around the world?
Mainline Protestant churches are in steady decline, and rightfully so. It is a heavy indictment against evangelical leaders when the vast and overwhelming majority of evangelical church members openly support someone whose morals and actions are diametrically opposed to Jesus Christ.
Not only is such a degree of Biblical illiteracy simply stunning, the complete unawareness of who Jesus was and His basic message is beyond my comprehension. Even more damning is the fact that most evangelicals do not care about Trump’s racism, lying, greed and basic immorality.
Churches filled with members who openly support the exact opposite of all Jesus did and taught are no longer churches of Jesus Christ. Call them whatever you wish. They deserve to be closed, and the sooner the better.
Sometimes it can be difficult to get our heads around the massive injustice of the GOP tax plan. The numbers are staggering, and the sheer immorality of the Republican leaders is beyond comprehension.
The illustration above is an attempt to give a graphic picture of the reality of what’s going down. #BLOTUS and his Republican cohorts are desperate for a win, and they are obligated to pay back their mega donors. This tax bill will do both while most of us will suffer the consequences.
Every concerned/outraged citizen needs to contact their representatives and shout/scream “NO.” And we need to do it now.
